For the first time since the beginning of the coronavirus epidemic, there has not been a single patient with COVID-19 in hospitals in Iceland. This is reported by the Icelandic media.
Iceland's chief epidemiologist, Torolfur Judnason, also said that for the first time in the past three weeks, no cases of transmission of coronavirus disease have been detected in the country.
At the same time, the coronavirus in Iceland has not yet been completely defeated вЂ” 100 people are on self-isolation (they have confirmed the coronavirus, but they are being treated at home), and several more, who are suspected of coronavirus disease, are in quarantine.
According to the chief Icelandic epidemiologist, the results of Iceland's fight against coronavirus indicate that quarantine in the country can be weakened, and the current restrictive measures will be in effect in the country until September 10 inclusive.
As the newspaper notes, we are talking primarily about restrictions on movement within the country.
